Grand Openings in Stockyard’s Mule Alley!

Grand Openings in Stockyard’s Mule Alley!

Stockyards Heritage Development Co. will safely welcome the community to enjoy Memorial Day Weekend at the Fort Worth Stockyards, May 22-25. With a nod to the Texas spirit embodied in the Fort Worth Stockyards, we will slowly forge ahead with the statement “Together We Ride,” reminding us all to safely get out and enjoy the great outdoors and Texas landmarks.

Those looking to shop their way through Mule Alley can help Lucchese Bootmaker and MB Mercantile & Supply celebrate their grand openings all weekend long. Rustic luxe lifestyle brand Lucchese brings a history and legacy of artisanal quality and excellence in western wear to Fort Worth. Shoppers can browse through high-end, handcrafted boots, shoes, belts, and other apparel and accessories, and learn what makes a Luccchese boot one-of-a-kind. MB Mercantile & Supply will transport customers to a world of nostalgia. The Stockyards gem is a must-see for artisan goods, home décor, confectionery, and vintage finds, and provides the perfect photo-op to remember the day by. To celebrate their grand opening, MB Mercantile & Supply will be offering a free $25 gift for the first 50 customers each day.

“The opening of one of the first two Lucchese stores in Mule Alley and MB Mercantile signifies a major milestone in the Fort Worth Stockyards’ new history. Lucchese, the first of many iconic western brands to call Mule Alley home, is an opening we have been looking forward to bringing to the Fort Worth community and beyond for several years. Help us welcome these two difference-makers safely this weekend,” says Craig Cavileer, managing partner for Stockyards Heritage.

Mule Alley will also have picnic areas on the lawn available with beverage service. Guests can check out local favorite Cowtown Winery on Saturday from 12 to 6 p.m. The winery will be in front of their upcoming Mule Alley location selling wine by the bottle or glass for adults to enjoy throughout the Stockyards. From Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay to Stockyard Peach, Boot Scootin’ (Raspberry), and Wild West Berry (Blackberry) – there will be something for every wine palate.

Families and friends can gather in small groups to enjoy the 200-acre recreation area at the Fort Worth Stockyards and partake in the legendary Cowtown Cattlepen Maze! The iconic maze is made up of wooden pathways and spans 5,400 square feet. A large second-story observation deck looks over the maze and is the perfect spot to plot your route or cheer on loved ones. On Saturday, May 23 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. guests can enjoy the new Fort Worth Herd Experience, which brings the Old West to the Stockyards with story telling sessions and, of course, the famous Texas longhorn herd.

Guests can also safely meet their favorite country radio celebrities from The Ranch FM and Hank FM throughout the weekend at Mule Alley. Those who sign up for the New Stockyards Heritage Club will receive a free bandana or collector’s pin.

All participating tenants are taking the proper COVID-19 precautions, mandated by the Texas Department of Health, to ensure guests can shop, dine, and enjoy the great outdoors in a healthy and safe environment. Mule Alley is encouraging guests to practice social distancing, hand sanitization, and face mask protection when visiting.

Mother’s Day in Fort Worth

Mother’s Day in Fort Worth

Mom says to continue to follow social distancing guidelines, even on Mother’s Day.  Listen to your mother!  We will have many more years ahead to get up close and personal, but let’s stay on track with COVID-19 this Mother’s Day and continue to follow the guidelines offered by the health authorities.

BRUNCH…and other fun things to do with Mom

1. Mother’s Day Brunch at….Home

It’s time to step up Guys and Kiddos — Here’s a fun twist on Mother’s Day Brunch

Make all of Mom’s favorite brunch goodies, turn off the television, phones, everything!  Make mimosas, order flowers, what else does Mom like?

Then when you think you have done enough, turn on her favorite movie and either enjoy it with her, or get lost and let her enjoy it alone.  Let Mom decide which works better for her.

2. Pick Your Favorite Mother’s Day Brunch Spot in Fort Worth for CARRY-OUT or DELIVERY

Support The Fort — Eat Local and Eat Often! Here’s a great list of Fort Worth Restaurants offering Curbside Service and Delivery.

3. Enjoy a Stroll or Bike Ride Along the Trinity Trails

Please follow all city guidelines regarding park closures and social distancing guidelines.

The Trinity Trails is always a great family outing.  Extending through Fort Worth for over 70 miles along the Trinity River, The Trinity Trails is a wonderful trek for hikers, bikers, runners, and horseback riders and a special outing with Mom.

4. Every Mom loves flowers! SAVE $10

Here’s an idea that doesn’t take any social distancing thought to it.  Order Mom flowers or a beautiful spring flower arrangement.  What’s Up staffers use Gordon Boswell Florist.  Limited daily deliveries due to COVID-19, but curbside pick up is available.  Plan your delivery or pick up dates on Monday thru Wednesday next week (May 4-6) and get $10 off.  Just add Coupon Code MOM2020 online or by phone.

Save $$$ on Flowers for Mom!

5. Indulge in Some (Online) Retail Therapy with Mom

Every mom has “a thing” or favorite store.  Treat your mom to an afternoon of online shopping and buy her something nice, something she would not have bought for herself. It may not be quite the same as strolling around town together arm-in-arm and actually seeing the goods in person, but it could be fun searching for items on your phones, sitting around the kitchen table.   #Support Our Fort.  We love supporting Fort Worth businesses so that’s always a Bonus.  A good day of shopping is always followed by a good glass of wine at your favorite spot.   OK so the favorite spot is not available but part of the Mother’s Day treat is you bringing the wine!

6. Host Your Own SIP and PAINT Class

While you can’t head to an art studio for a wine and painting event right now, you can bring the same creative fun home by ordering some art supplies online and opening a bottle of your finest Cab. Pick a subject (like the fruit bowl on your kitchen counter or Dad lounging on the sofa) and start painting. Just don’t expect  Mom to hang your work of art in the living room?  Don’t like the PAINT part of this idea, no problem…..Host Your Own Sip and Sit with Mom.  How’s that?

7. Give Mom a Mani-Pedi

How long have we been under Shelter in Place?  That is way too long to go without a mani-pedi, right?  Treat Mom to a little pampering to encourage mother-daughter bonding. It’s OK if it doesn’t look quite as flawless as a professional mani-pedi—it’s Mother’s Day…this is about spending quality time together. (Besides, who’s going to see it, anyway?)

8. ENJOY A VIRTUAL WINE TASTING

Wine is a recurring element in #s 1-7 above, so let’s give wine it’s own due at #8.  If you are not able to spend time with Mom this Mother’s Day, set up a virtual Wine Tasting or Wine Day.  Have the wine delivered ahead of time, complete with glasses, cheese and crackers, the whole works.  Now, just Facetime and Enjoy!

9. GARDEN TOGETHER

Order supplies online beforehand and then spend the day potting, planting, pruning, and bonding.

10. Adopt a Giraffe for Mom

The Fort Worth Zoo offers a unique way to celebrate Mother’s Day.  Adopt a giraffe in honor of Mom this year! The adoption fees contribute to the care and feeding of our herd for one full year. In addition to our regular adoption package, we are offering an all-digital package, which provides a no-contact way to celebrate the occasion. The Fort Worth Zoo knows that this is a financially difficult time for many, so the digital adoption gift can be purchased with a pay-what-you-can donation.

Adopt a Giraffe for Mother’s Day!

11.  Plan a Game Night for Mom

You know what games Mom likes to play—card games, board games, charades, or any other party game.  If Mom likes it, let’s play it!

12.  No Work Pass

OK this should be a given.  Moms do not work on Mother’s Day.  If your mom tries to participate in work activities,  present her with a “No Work Pass” for the day.  Sit her down and take over.

13. Custom Coupons for Mom

We all like to have something to look forward to…

Since all of our focus is when the coronavirus crisis will be over and when we will be back to normal (the new normal, that is), put a coupon book together for things that you want to do with Mom when the world opens up.  Ideas are easy—lunch and a movie, a wine outing or Happy Hour, a spa day.  The list is endless and it gives Mom lots more things to look forward to, when COVID-19 is behind us.
